International Disasters Aid International Development

We are currently delivering emergency relief items throughout the Solukhumbu region, including tents and tarpaulins, and also other supplies such as wet weather and warm weather gear, sleeping bags and solar lamps.

While most of our Rebuild Appeal will go towards the long term rebuilding of community schools, hospitals and health posts, we recognise the necessity for immediate assistance in the region—so we are helping right now on the ground, assessing on a case-by-case basis by our teams in the district.

For more details, we are sharing updates through our Facebook and Twitter pages.

We ask New Zealand to please give generously so we can help in what will be a long term response to a very serious disaster.

Himalayan Trust


Sir Edmund Hillary founded the Himalayan Trust in 1960, and ever since then we have been working alongside our friends and partner organisations in Nepal to help the people of the Everest region with health, education and general wellbeing.

We are an international non-profit humanitarian organisation working in the Solukhumbu region of Nepal—an area where Sir Ed first set off to climb Mt Everest and where he ended up spending many years over his lifetime.
